On seeing a call for promo treatments on Facebook from Snowden, director John Merizalde shifted his focus from the celestial heights of record breaking cosmonauts to the gritty and atypical tale of a boxer born of violence and eyeliner in his first music video The Beat Comes.
Merizalde shot a mix of RED Epic and Sony FS700 footage in Atlanta over two days and worked with songwriter Jordan Jeffares to put a fresh spin on the boxing montage concept which felt like a natural visual fit for the invigorating energy of the track.
And here’s a set of behind the scenes stills Merizalde was kind enough to share with DN:
MarBelle has a strange compulsion to watch as many films as he can get his hands on and find jobs that give him a legitimate excuse to drill filmmakers about their work. Directors Notes is the latest incarnation of this disorder and so much cheaper than film school. Twitter: @MarBelle
